About the Wine

Aussie Nebbiolo has come a long way in the past few years, and this is one of the best value examples around.

This comes from the excellent Malakoff Vineyard in the Pyrenees - a site known for quality Nebbiolo - and the extremely capable winemaking talents of Adam Louder.  It's made very simply - picked at the right time, 28 days on skins and then into older oak.  It's bottled unfined and unfiltered - it's a simple but very effective formula.

With an impressive review from Mike Bennie, this is one of the best value Nebbs around.  Just 140 dozen made and the ultimate introduction to what makes Nebbiolo so adored.

About SubRosa

Adam Louder's career has been a long and prestigious one even though he is only in his mid-30s.

With more than 30 vintages under his belt, he has worked with some true masters during his time at the press. From the early days under Trevor Mast at Mount Langhi Ghiran to Araujo Estate owned by Chateau Latour in the Napa Valley, to Chateau Carsin in Bordeaux and Pierro and Xanadu in Margaret River, the man has worked in world-class wineries his entire career.

Now, his own label SubRosa is breaking through with a characterful range of interesting wines from Victoria.

It's an exciting project which should have a close eye kept on it.

The Wine Front

"From the notable Malakoff vineyard, plundered regularly by nebbiolo-enthused winemakers around the traps. Winemaker Adam Louder is his own man, but is now in charge of Mount Langi, but that’s by-the-by as this, his family project, is distinct, and, distinguished in its own right. Style-wise it reminds me a bit of Olek Bondonio’s wines of Barbaresco.It’s a vibrant, pure-feeling expression, loaded with perfume, lashed with savoury, iron-filing and graphite-tannins, bright in fruit flavour, dusted with attractive spice. There’s also a distinct vibrancy here, a cheery, cherry-kissed feel that’s easy for earlier access, despite there being cool, amaro-like acidity and a sheath of building tannin. It drives assertively then lingers with sappy fruit and minerally feel. It’s such a pleasure. It’s great." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
